AfterLife

That’s after life drawing, which finished about half an hour ago at Swansea Print Workshop and I’m squeezing in a quick blog before I go to bed. This is the warm up drawing I did, just a few minutes to get used to the pose and I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free Markers app. This is an older model who is quite a character and has many interesting tattoos.

 

 

For a limited period I am putting a new drawing from my recent sketch books on my Artfinder gallery every day.  If you’d like to check them out, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

A Digital Head

I’m making some headway (pardon the pun) with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet. I haven’t drawn with it for a couple of years but I restarted a couple of weeks ago in life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop. I’m using a free app called Markers and I like the simplicity of it. However, when I open a new page I need to lay down a ground first and build up the drawing on top, otherwise it goes a bit funny and sort of reverses itself and has to be corrected in Adobe Photoshop. This portrait took about 20 minutes.

Life Drawing And Cake

1 Jul

This is a fairly quick drawing I did at life drawing session in Swansea Print Workshop on Thursday evening. I’m getting back into drawing with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using the free Markers app. There is some quite extreme foreshortening with that right foot.

 

I took along an apricot upside-down cake for the tea break. I like the way the apricots caramelised around the edges. I drizzled a little home-made elderflower cordial onto them before cooking the cake and it browned them nicely.

Fingertip Drawing

Here’s the second digital drawing I did at the life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop earlier in the week. I was struggling with the stylus. It needs delicate handing and I’m out of practice, I haven’t used it for a couple of years, so I ditched the stylus and started using my fingertips, which was much more responsive.

A Digital Practice

After a long break of, oh …. a couple of years or so, I picked up my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet, called up the Markers app (it’s free, that’s why I like it so much) and took it to life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop earlier this week. I was way out of practice and this first drawing is very clunky, the line appears fractionally behind the stylus and it’s a bit disconcerting until you get used to it. Anyway, I’m practising for a specific piece of work I’m planning for later in the Summer, my first seriously planned digital piece, and I need all the practice I can get.
